: : How does everybody feel about using dialect in fiction? I've heard never to do it.
In my to-be-published novel, Ammon's Horn, I use dialect extensively. First, American slang and pronuncation: "Ain't that a lotta chow t' be eatn' this hour the morning'?"
And, foreign accent: "Da, she iss the one. She steals from me my work, my ideas. my life!"
